The Dark Knight Breaks the $1 Billion Mark

The Dark Knight has become the fourth film to take in more than $1 billion in worldwide box office.

Warner Bros. Pictures made the announcement Friday afternoon, saying that the combined domestic and international gross had totaled $1,001,082,160 to date — about $533 million domestically and $567 million overseas.

The Dark Knight had been about $4 million short of the 10-figure mark when Warner Bros. re-released it into IMAX screens on Jan. 23, the day after its eight Oscar nominations were announced. Grosses from Ecuador also helped nudge the film over the mark, a spokeswoman said.

Only Titanic ($1.842 billion), The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ($1.119 billion) and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest ($1.066 billion) have topped the billion-dollar worldwide mark previously.

I Can Read Movies

Mitch Ansara created a number of mock 1960s paperback book covers for “I Can Read Movies”, a fictional series of movie novelizations.

He says, “The books came about from my involvement in the Make Something Cool Every Day group on flickr. They were partly inspired by my friend Moss’ totally awesome movie poster remakes, and all the musty old textbooks and digests that I used to love flipping through as a kid. I love movies more than anyone you’ll ever meet… and I have no experience, training, or confidence in graphic design or type, so I’m just having fun”.
